I have seen willow catkins! They add to my positive feelings about the year ahead and my excitement for all God has in store to see His will done and His kingdom come.
I will heed the instruction that we need to work hard and if we encounter tough times it doesn’t mean we’re crossing the wrong terrain. I’m ready to work hard at the things my hands find to do and to work at them with all my heart, for God.
But right now everything looks dormant. Unseen, change is stirring beneath the surface – growth is happening. Spring it on, Lord!
